Reviews and News - December 2009
(Review and photos for 12/28/09)
Note from Nina:
There was lots of holiday cheer being spread around at The Joint last night 12/14/09. It might have been a bit chilly outside, but the Waddy Wachtel Band got everyone heated up real fast. Burnin’ hot Rock ‘n’ Roll for all!
As soon as Waddy Wachtel hit those first guitar chords, Phil Jones banged the drums, and Rick Rosas pumped on that bass, we all knew we’d be in for another fantastic electric gig. Then Bernard Fowler got up on stage and sang to us “You Got Me Rockin’ “ and we definitely got each other Rockin’.
We had so much fun - band and audience - as WWB blasted through the first set, with Blondie Chaplin and Jamie Savko adding their masterful lead and harmony vocals to the tunes. And we got our special holiday treat from Keith Allison, who smiled his way through singing “Run Run Rudolph.”
After their traditionally short break, WWB came back to spread even more holiday rockin’ cheer, and even more surprises........
Adam Sandler was in the house, and got up to sing 2 songs. It’s always a real treat when Adam shows up..... he’s got so much energy and has no problem showing how much fun he’s having up there. Hearing him sing “Bitch” was a rare and delightful treat. That guy can really ROCK! Yes, he has a great singing voice.
To end the night, the guys gave us a fantastic holiday send-off song. Can you imagine putting “Little Drummer Boy” in the middle of AC/DC’s “Sin City?” Yup! WWB made it work, and Bernard segued his vocals beautifully between them, with Blondie adding background vocals that shook the house. Yes, the house shook! We were all buzzin’ delightfully as the guys wished us Happy Holidays. Happy....... for sure!
